Metabolite Identification
Common NameEthyl tetradecanoate
DescriptionEthyl tetradecanoate, also known as myristate ethyl ester or ethyl myristate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid esters. These are carboxylic ester derivatives of a fatty acid. Ethyl tetradecanoate is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
